How to analyse a film that is not meant to be analysed? The premise is there is no premise, only 21 minutes of surreal imagery inspired by dreams. The world-famous painter Salvador Dali co-wrote his first film, An Andalusian Dog, with his student colleague Luis Buñuel. Despite having written a screenplay, the film itself does not follow any conventional narrative structure - rather, it embraces the freedom of artistic expression with little to no structure. Welcome to surrealist cinema.
Directed by Luis Buñuel. Starring Simone Mareuil, Pierre Batcheff, Luis Buñuel, Salvador Dali, Robert Hommet.
